If you’ve never used Red Heart Buttercup for a baby project, you should definitely give it a try. Holy cow this yarn is so “super soft and snuggly” I want to touch it all the time! No wonder babies love it so much! After making a pom pom out of Red Heart Reflective yarn in my last blog, I was itching to make another (times 2) to go on a headband for my new little friend, Miss Chloe. So I decided to use the two yarns for my latest project, a Kitty Cat Headband.
Using Buttercup yarn and a US 10.5/6.5mm Susan Bates crochet hook, I followed the steps in Red Heart’s Flower Petal Headband pattern. The pattern uses size 3 Anne Geddes Baby yarn but since I used size 5 Buttercup the headband turned out a little thicker but just perfect!
Here are the steps:
Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in each ch across, turn—7 sts.
Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as dc), skip first st, dc in each dc across, turn—7 dc.
Now comes the kitty cat face.
……and find a precious little girl and take a flash photo! How cute is she?!?!?!?!
